It is a Costworth BDA. Must be disguised to look original.

Check it out HERE.

Do yourself a favor and look at all of the pictures - you will not believe the clean design and attention to detail. Right down to inducing misfire to make it sound like the original flathead running.

Notice the wheels - he designed them to look original, custom machined them and then painted them to look like wood.

I spent half a day at this website.
